What Causes a Golf Slice? | How to Fix a Slice

06/24/2016 It is one of the most common swing mistakes. There is a lot of incorrect information out there suggesting how to fix a slice. A slice describes what happens when the flight of the golf ball curves from left to right (for the right-handed golfer—the opposite for lefties). Many golfers have looked on with disappointment, and sometimes abject horror, as their golf ball curves in the characteristic path of a slice. Paging through golf magazines or watching tutorials online frequently offer three outdated suggestions: strengthen the grip, rotate the forearms (or hands), or slightly close the club face. Unfortunately,...

Golf and What the Best Do, That You Don’t

06/14/2016 I recently had the pleasure of doing a radio interview with my good friend and accomplished instructor Chris Foley. In addition to teaching full time, Chris hosts a weekly radio show in Minnesota where he and his guests share ideas on golf and specifically golf instruction. Now like most all my conversations with Chris, our discussion quickly led to coaching and what trends we are seeing in golf instruction. Specifically this time, our talk revolved around working with elite players and the little things that separate good golf from world-class golf. (Chris Foley on Facebook.) The topic got me...

5 Trends In Youth Coaching I Would Change

03/08/2016 Having been involved in youth coaching for many years, I have seen some trends develop that concern me. This article will discuss those trends, which I call The Five Trends In Youth Coaching I Would Change. Fun day with @Sami_Langford21 @McKaylaPoppens @aj_herding @Swebs_97 @jkolb1017 @jacoblee035 @S_Cliffe42 #tkga #golf pic.twitter.com/gitZ7aekp6 — Todd Kolb (@toddkolbgolf) January 24, 2016 1.Winning The first trend that I would change is the way youth coaching places too much emphasis on winning.  A win does not always indicate better and a loss does not always indicate worse.  The performance of a young athlete should be...

Angle of Attack: A Definition of the Term You Need To Understand (VIDEO)

03/01/2016 One fundamental definition when discussing the golf swing is the ‘angle of attack.’ Though golf jargon can be filled with technical language that is difficult to dissect, ‘angle of attack’ is fairly simple: it is the angle the center of the club head (the sweet spot!) has at the moment of impact with the golf ball. There are three basic directions that golfers use to define the angle of attack. The club head can be traveling down, which is called a negative angle of attack. It can be traveling level, or neutral, which is called zero. Finally, it...

The 5 Keys to Great Coaching

02/14/2016 Having worked with athletes for so long, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about the keys to becoming a good coach. In early February, I wrote on one of the keys that I thought was absolutely imperative. I’ve also talked at lengths about the pursuit of the perfect golf coach. It’s important to find a coach that fits your golf game. My belief is that there are five components to effective coaching. #1: “Let the athlete Know You Care” The first of these is what I have come to refer to as “The Golden Rule,” and it...

Teaching With Technology: Understanding Distances With Flightscope

02/08/2016 Many golfers are familiar with the idea of using technology to analyze their golf swing in order to improve their game. But recording your golf swing using technology, like FlightScope, can assist you in other ways, namely by helping you determine what we will call the two Ds of your swing: the distance your ball is likely to travel, and the deviation, or how far to the right or the left of the target, that you tend to land the ball. Distance: Knowing the distance you hit each club will be a valuable tool to help you shave points...

The Responsibility of Coaching and the “Key” Element

02/03/2016 ‘Those who can, do; those who can’t, teach.’ This familiar turn of phrase haunts coaches and teachers alike, suggesting that the ability to instruct is less important than the ability to perform. However, I have learned firsthand that the opposite is true: the greatest gift an athlete can give is their ability to coach. And coaching comes with substantial responsibility. To sum up the impact a coach can have on an athlete would be too great an undertaking, so I will instead focus on one single aspect of the coach’s responsibility: awareness. Throughout my years as a golf...
